      My new fav foundation! Matches my skin perfectly. Its so lightweight i forgot i was even wearing it! Feels soo smooth. I like that its a light to medium buildable coverage. Has SPF in it but will NOT give a white cast when taking photos with flash.

        I am 58 and this gives me the complexion of someone in their 40's. It covers wrinkles well and gives a healthy glow. The coverage is light to medium.

        With great expectations I opened the box and was thrilled to see it had a pump, easier to use and keep clean! Color was on the dark side but once on it blended well with my skin tone. Lasted for 8 hours and covered the majority of my flaws. A primer is a must though if you have med to large pores.

        I really wish this would provide more coverage. It will be good during the summer months, but I really like a heavier coverage. It doesn't last my entire shift (12+ hours).

        I hate foundation but Halo feels and looks great on my skin. It lasts all day and does not get oily or "cakey". Coverage is excellent. I highly recommend this product for all skin types.

          Just got started with this product -- great coverage! It goes on so smoothly and easily! I have never been one to apply foundation with a brush but this goes on so well and blends so easily I have been able to incorporate a brush into my morning routine without a hitch!

          Very Light coverage as it says it is. Will not cover redness or spots. Good texture but uneven coverage Clings to dry patches. Tried with primer and moisturizer and only saw slight improvement. Could see it as a good photography foundation but not for all day wear. Glass package feels nice and looks nice on a makeup table. Not so great if you have tile bathroom floors or granite counters.

            This product blends well and my skin feels silky, similar to a primer effect... But BETTER. Great pigmentation, it's perfect for me and I felt like I wasn't wearing any foundation. Just a flawless finish! Worth the cost!

              I love this foundation. It goes on and blends very well. It gives your skin a smooth pore less refreshed look. I use with the photo primer. Stays on all day when I got home from work my makeup looked like I just applied. A little goes along way worth the price.

                I see this product is oil free, but is it non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging)?

                  Smashbox does not claim that this product is noncomedogenic.

              • Q:

                I used High Definition Health FX foundation in Light L3 for years and it seems to be discontinued. The website suggested I look at this product. Is it comparable coverage? I'm concerned that the SPF will cause the white face flash that the Healthy FX did not. I'm also curious about which shade would be comparable. Thanks!

                  This foundation provides buildable sheer-to-medium coverage. All Smashbox products are photo-tested in a professional studio environment to ensure their finishes photograph beautifully (no "flashback" effect).

                  Use our handy shade conversion chart to determine your best shade match:

                  We suggest shade 4 for those who used L3.

              • Q:

                I really like the smashbox BB cream, but I want something with just a little more coverage for events, date nights, and etcetera. I wear the light/medium in the BB cream and that is a pretty close match to my skin tone. So, what would be my best match for the Liquid Halo HD Foundation Broad Spectrum?

                  Light Warm Beige (4) (Item #:2262310) may be your best match. Please note that these shades may be tested at your nearest ULTA store, if you prefer:

              • Q:

                I am in the "seasoned women" category. Does this foundation settle in to fine lines and/or areas around the eyes emphasizing lines and creases?
